the presentation today. dan adams. brian chu. and i'm sorry -- will be making the presentations today. if you do choose to adopt the procedures manual, we'll go into the associated ordinances as the next item. >> good afternoon, commissioners we have divide up our presentation into two segments. i am here just to give a brief overview of some of the demographics of the program that was requested last time and dan adams will come up and walk you through some of the small changes and additions that have been made in the procedures manual between the time of the last informational meeting and today's meeting. and i do have some handouts i can leave with you for some of the information that i'm going to talk to you today. you had asked for general information about the number of units in our program and who is in our units? so briefly, we have approximately 1280 completed units in our bmr program. of those approximately 860 are ownership units and 420 are rental units. again i have all of this on a handout that i will give for you for a total of 1280. we have an additional 1200 units in the pipelin
the engineering group. we have dan -- who i see i missed. excuse me. we have dpw who did the design for the area. we have them with the living classroom and maybe it was going to be in another area but it's going to be here at the port of san francisco and had the help of a number of agencies and the parks department and keeping as gorgeous and welcoming as it is. this part was not a park for long. originally this was supposed to be a terminal and imagine if we can containers stacked around here. instead we have a place for humans to come and enjoy, dogs to come and enjoy, the children come and learn about the natural habitat about one of the areas that is best weather wise and we are proud to reinvent ourselves and use our ability to make it all better. i would like to thank the mta with their vision and the blue green way on cargo lane and of course last but not least the park of rec and park and without them we wouldn't be here today having this great celebration and i hope you come back with your dogs, with your families and picnic and enjoy yourself very much so thank you again.

? >> it is both. >> ok, dan has to go. thank you very much. >> thank you, enjoy the water. >> ok, we're going to go around to the front door and look at this. the ferry building was originally built on woodpiles. that were driven down into the mud. not the bad rock. it is almost impossible to find bad rap here -- it is almost impossible to find that rocked -- bedrock. they brought this so they could build the ventilation shaft, and the construction materials were brought here. the same thing is true if you go up to camp mather. a lot of what you see at camp mather was built, part of the construction shack and places for people to lift when they build the dam. the same thing is true here. this is the bart ventilation shaft and the ferry. the average water depth isz about 40 feet, and that is about right. on this side of the bay, we have average depths better 35, 40, 50 feet. the east side of the bay is very shallow. then the larger ships that come through need to have at least 40 feet. they actually have to dredge up some of it. there is a very limited channel through the bed. in a sailboat, y
's thoughts that this was all exciting to think about and it was received very well. >> anything else, dan? >> as we did on the last panel, that elevator speech, what did you share, what was your big take away that you gave to your boss to say this was why this exercise was important and that take away. >> collaboration is key. jurisdictions need to work with one another, they need to understand who is in charge, what they've got, that goes from city to city, city to county, county to state, state to federal. everyone needs to be working together, understand who the partners are, what arrangement they are going to have for command and control, arrival of assets and things to deal with the local emergencies. things can go back in marin, california, lots of people are going to be rolling in. the time to form relationships and what one another can bring to the table is not when the disaster evolves but in anticipation of it. i think san francisco is doing a great job of getting all the partners together to understand more clearly what they can do with one another and what they can do to de
or the senselessness of dan white or the well intentioned world of hollywood or the better intentioned world of theater. it's time to reclaim him from the places where the real george gets lost in the story of others, even in my own. and we gift him back to the city and to the people, to his friends and to his colleagues and to the citizens who are the fabric and texture and color of san francisco. so, all of us can stop looking at the death of george moscone and start to put him firmly in our hearts so we can see the likes of him in new community leaders, young artists, queer and colorful, innovators and students, all inside our magnificently and uniquely diverse and never-changing city. san francisco will never be what it was, nothing in life will be. but as i heard recently, we are always nostalgic for a time that never was and often wanting to avoid a future that is inevitable. will change in san francisco as in everywhere is inevitable. and change can be beautiful. we are all of us the agents of change. as george and harvey were. each one of us is the story teller of our lives and the lives of the

(applause) >> thank you very much, president fong. our last speaker is one of our best partners in san francisco. he represents the department of public works. he is the city engineer. without the department of public works, cruise terminal project at piers 27-29 would not be possible. they are probably working on about 40 projects with us right now. we are very much in their debt. and to say a few words, please help me welcome, rod, city engineer. (applause) >> give us $4 million and we'll show you how fast we can spend it. [laughter] >> this is how much we spent on this project since october of this year, in the last 2, 2-1/2 months. so, back in september monique and i sat and d
